It wasn’t too long ago that the area immediately east of the I-41 and Holy Hill Road interchange in Germantown was farmland. Now, it is home to four industrial buildings that are either brand new or under construction, with potentially more to be developed later.

In the foreground of this aerial photo is a 100,000-square-foot building under construction that will serve as a new headquarters and manufacturing facility for Menomonee Falls-based Dielectric Corp.

The other three buildings are part of Milwaukee-based Zilber Property Group’s 140-acre Gateway Corporate Park. The 706,000-square-foot Briggs & Stratton global distribution facility is operational, while the other two roughly 200,000-square-foot buildings are still under construction. The one furthest north of Holy Hill Road is to be used by Kansas City-based Smart Warehousing. Zilber has additional sites at the park available for development.
